Priestfield

Morecambe were denied a very credible draw at table topping Gillingham on Saturday afternoon by an injury-time winner.

After seeing Adam Barrett twice denied on the line Gillingham finally did take the lead shortly before the break when Lewis Montrose (37) broke the deadlock to send the hosts into the interval ahead.

Having threatened to do so shortly before Morecambe finally did draw level just past the midway point of the second half when substitute Jack Redshaw (69) levelled things.

A one-all draw was almost certain to be the case, until Deon Burton (90+3) struck deep into injury-time to give the hosts a 2-1 win.
